Ecole Communautaire Saint Jean
Referred to by Paul Farmer’s “Mountains Beyond Mountians,” or Déyé Món Gen Món, reaching this school in our network is a feat in and of itself. But once you reach the gate and look back you can see the entirety of Lake Pèligre. The principal and founder of the school are products of the community school when it was just built by wood before our partners at Digital came and built it to what it stands to be today. It is part of our 10 model schools and boasts a coffee project and a beautiful school garden.
